Sheffield Girls' students perform at Rugby World Cup in partnership with UNICEF

Our Infant and Junior School pupils had an exciting opportunity to sing during halftime at last week’s Rugby League World Cup game between England and Greece. They dazzled the 19,000 strong crowd with their performance of the song ‘Right to be Loved’, which promotes children's rights.

This year, the Rugby League World Cup is working in partnership with the United Kingdom Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) and are supporting the delivery of the Rights Respecting Schools Award across the UK. We were delighted to receive the Silver Award last year following a visit from the Committee in September. Our students were able to provide examples of lessons, assemblies and activities they had been taking part in relating to the UNICEF ‘Article of the Week’ and explored how the rights in the Convention are covered within our day to day curriculum and school life.

Our students are empowered to exercise their rights and promote the rights of others, both locally and globally. We are proud of our pupils and staff's commitment to living out these values and we look forward to continuing our journey to becoming a Gold Award Rights Respecting School in the near future.

Well done girls, you all sounded amazing! Here’s a clip from their special performance.
